Choice on headers and exhaust

Ivey guys I'm shopping for a set of headers and an exhaust system. What have you guys been happy with? I know I want some type of coated header and not just painted. I want it to look good for a while. As for the exhaust in the past I have always had a shop make them for me. But now with so many aftermarket company's out there can someone suggest a well fitting full system? It is my best bet still the local shop. I'm not looking to break the bank on any of this so price will play a part. Here is the set up:
67 convertible with a 454-4-speed. I say convertible because some companies don't slow for that extra brace under the car. Thanks for the help.

67 rs/ss conv. 350 car (454) for now
Richmond T10-4speed, 12 bolt 3:73
Matching numbers. Original motor and Trans are tucked away nicely.

Smile Re: Choice on headers and exhaust

This is what I would get... Hooker headers and Magnaflow exhaust.

Examples:

Exhaust - http://www.summitracing.com/parts/mp...t/model/camaro

Headers - http://www.summitracing.com/parts/ho...-size/6-5l-396

You probably will need to shim the Camaro's X-brace down or get one of these.

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/hss-1404 or http://www.hotchkis.net/product/1967...brace-support/

69 Camaro -originally a LM1 car. 327, Edelbrock E-streets, hooker, DUI performance distributors, ultradyne cam, stewart, TRW etc. Vintage Air, AGR steering, Corbeau GTSII seats, 700R4 transmission, 12-bolt w/Eaton 4.11:1

Re: Choice on headers and exhaust

I went with Hedman Elites - 1-3/4" primaries. They fit better and have good ground clearance. Bigger tubes are a royal PITA for changing spark plugs.

Dynomax makes a really nice 2-1/2" exhaust that's better than stock and it's quiet.

You can get it cheaper at Autozone or Advance Auto when they have a sale with free shipping.

Hi Geinsteder

Do you have Power Steering ?

Power Brakes ?

And watch your Fuel line and Right Rear Upper Control Arm Pivot Bolt clearance to the Primary Tube.

I like my Doug's D-320 for my 1969 install w/ Power Steering, Be careful of the Hooker 2457's if you have P/S.
